• WP2: Sampling protocols are ready to be used in each DRN! They will be used at the beginning of 2021 to assess biodiversity of microbes, macroinvertebrates and fish, and to measure local environmental variables in 20 sites scattered across each DRN.

  • Within DRYvER we aim at generating a so far not existing impression on the chemical composition and diversity of particulate organic matter in six river networks. The tool of our choice is FTIR microscopy, allowing us to distinguish variously processed leaf litter particles, soil residuals and the occasional microplastic fiber. Tuning this microscopic method to efficiently achieve chemical fingerprinting for the many samples ahead of us in DRYvER is the lab challenge for the winter months.

  • WP4 team is busy setting up the conceptual basis for the modelling of ecosystem services provided by DRN and their values. This will serve as the basis for a forthcoming interdisciplinary workshop in the new year. The team is making itself familiar with the focal DRN, their commonalities and their differences and soon will be making a move in planning site specific activities

  • The WP3 team from University of Innsbruck works on setting up protocols for organic matter sample collection. Before sampling 6 river networks across Europe we give our ideas how to collect OM a decent test run in an Austrian river - cold, not dry at all and during Covid19-lockdown.
